Next Leader Now
A research-backed program designed to build better leadership across organizations
Next Leader Now: Not Your Average Leadership Development Program
Next Leader Now is a research-backed leadership training program designed to build better leadership qualities in program participants. An alternative approach to the check-off-the-box requirements and one-size-fits-all seminars, Next Leader Now is tailored to your organization and leaders in training. We take talent that has already demonstrated a high level of potential and build the muscle memory it takes to become an effective leader able to make executive-level decisions, boost team performance, and cultivate a strong legacy for your business.
The Old Method of Leadership Development
Leadership bestsellers, seminars, formal mentorship programs, graduate education, and affinity groups, are no longer up to the task. These approaches prioritize Baby Boomers’ leadership priorities of efficiency and decision-making rather than incorporating the interpersonal and intrapersonal leadership skills that younger workers value.
These one-off seminars or tick-the-box tactics reinforce “nugget-a-day” improvement instead of developing the leadership abilities and strategic thinking needed to compete and win in a marketplace that is fast, global, tech-enabled, and talent-competitive.
How to Determine Which Next Leader Now Program is Right for You
In person or remotely, we offer three different Next Leader Now programs, which are customized to your unique needs.
Next Leader Now
Our flagship program, Next Leader Now, is hosted by way of cohort classes that start at various times throughout the year. This provides plenty of opportunities to get a selection of candidates from your organization signed up to participate. You can submit just one person or dozens of candidates depending on how many people you feel are right to join. Once they’ve joined, our team will handle the rest.
What’s so powerful about this particular program is that it brings together people from multiple organizations and across all sorts of industries. With these cohorts being comprised of high-potential peers, they’re able to learn from one another and gain a fresh perspective on business, increase leadership competency, and more. Besides being a great learning opportunity, it’s also a way for cohort members to forge new connections that could last a lifetime.

The Skills You’ll Learn in a Next Leader Now Program
Every professional faces a moment where preparation and practice must become performance. You will make crucial decisions quickly using limited and ever-changing information in a market of competitors looking to exploit missteps. Our decades of experience developing future leaders have uncovered the four areas of focus that are essential to succeeding despite what happens next:
When faced with crucial choices, deciders often fall back on tendencies that can work against their ultimate goals. Next Leader Now enables you to: identify your decision-making tendencies, determine the usefulness of those tendencies, and build new muscle-memory habits that support your updated goals and objectives.
The whole team should feel passionate about the organization’s long-term success, otherwise there will be little drive as they’re working on day-to-day tasks and larger projects.
Involving multiple priorities, limited information, and an understanding of people, strategic direction, and organizational objectives, executive- level decisions are rarely based purely on data. Your Next Leader Now experience will allow you to develop new, more expansive decision models while recognizing pitfalls, patterns, and biases that often hinder others’ ability to achieve success.
Achievement in a leadership context is no longer about your success alone, but rather the performance of the entire team. Next Leader Now will put you in a position to develop the leadership, management, and supervisory skills that enable you to get the results you need through the efforts of others that ultimately support the goals of your organization.
Team members that have mastered these skills are truly worth the financial investment of participating in any of the Next Leader Now programs. With a competent, capable team by your side, achieving company-wide goals will be more effortless than ever.
Why These Programs Are Important for Those Interested in Leadership Development
Did you know that 93% of companies don’t have strong Millennial programs in place to build leaders within their workforce? And with so many Baby Boomers retiring, it’s the Millennial generation that’s poised to take over, meaning they need to be prepared. That’s why leadership development programs like Next Leader Now are so crucial in this day and age, as we’re at a critical turning point in society. Programs like these boost employee morale and engagement. Those who are confident in their skills and knowledge are likely going to be happier in their jobs, encouraging them to immerse themselves in company culture. And when employees are happier, efficiency is sure to increase as a result.
Employees who love their jobs and see a future for themselves within an organization are more likely to stick around long-term, ultimately reducing employee turnover rates. This reduces headaches and costs for your organization, as you won’t always be seeking new team members for replacements. With a leadership development program in place, employees will see a clear path for them to grow within your organization by creating a promising future for themselves. And of course, Next Leader Now is going to minimize those gaps in your organization’s talent pipeline. As older team members retire, younger generations will be better prepared to step into those roles without doubting themselves or questioning their abilities. It’ll create a much smoother takeover as older talent transitions out of their roles.
